Venice, where else?

25 Mar

Venice is my favourite place in the world. If I had to choose one place to stay forever, Venice will be the chosen one. Its architecture, its history, its food and its undeniable charm made me fall in love with this city when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve tried to visit Venice at least once a year. The Venice I love, my Venice, is placed in the Castello area. The Venice I love is full of empty tiny streets to enjoy long walks, lively squares to savour a Spritz and a nice conversation, boats that sell the best fruit and nights that are as enigmatic as silent. But there is another Venice: the opulent, decadent, exclusive and even obscene. That Venice surrounds the Gran Canal, that Venice is epitomize by those palazzi where lavish parties have taken place during years. I’ve always been so curious about it, I won’t lie. And this hotel seems the best place to discover it.

And if you continue reading you will discover a hotel that epitomizes almost everything that holidays in Italy mean to me.

Lately we’ve been thinking about its avantgard atmosphere, the sea breeze, the cool shops and museums and the incredibly beautiful architecture. Wouldn’t it be a great destination for a Winter getaway? We could escape to milder temperatures, light sunshine and the sea… oh, the sea!

Not my thing, though ;) But for those of you who are adventurous and sporty, here you have six gorgeous places to welcome 2014 that will be perfect for you. Continue reading
